Athenaeum Music and Arts Library
Memory, Voyage, Full Moon
The Athenaeum presents "Memory, Voyage, Full Moon" by Ernest Silva and "New Works" by Joshua Miller February 21 through March 21.
"Memory, Voyage, Full Moon" will feature the early paintings and drawings by renowned local artist Ernest Silva (1948-2014) in the Athenaeum’s Joseph Clayes III Gallery. The large images primarily span the late '70s and early '80s but fast forward through to 2011 to include some of the last works that Silva created.
A self-described “visual storyteller,” Silva also illustrated books written by Dr. Verdicchio, Professor of Italian and Comparative Literature at University of California, San Diego. "Memory, Voyage, Full Moon" incorporates related sketches, sculptural elements, and notes.
In the Rotunda Gallery, Joshua Miller with "New Works" exhibits the newest iteration of his porcelain plates.
